An email filter is a software app that runs on an email server and monitors all inbound email messages in order to stop any unrequested ones from entering a specific mailbox. Several instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notices or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea of damaging your computer. Spam filters normally check the content of an email message and if they spot certain keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the email message or deliver it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain providers combine their own email filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of security for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, email server IPs and other information about spam messages recently revealed by these organizations.
